Description and habitat

 

  • Perennial sub-shrub of Mediterranean regions
  • Twigs erect, unbranched, leaves narrow, lanceolate, opposite
  • Flowers located on a long peduncle in dense whorls, forming a false spike, with a very pleasant smell
  • True lavender predominates in the "Banon-Sault-Sédéron" area, but it is grown in the valleys of Drôme and Verdon, Vercors, Lubéron, Alpes-de-Haute-Provence, Baronnies, Hautes- Alps, it grows up to 2000 m altitude in the Alpes de Haute-Provence
  • Its essential oil has had an AOC (Appellation d'Origine Contrôlée) since 1981, like the great wines.
    • The best fine lavender is from the wild population: all the plants are different, to be differentiated from the so-called clonal lavenders, resulting from the selection of all identical clones, more resistant and with better yield, which are reproduced by cuttings
  • Flower stalks shorter than those of aspic lavender or wild lavender ( Lavandula latifolia ) which has wider and more pubescent leaves
  • Lavandin ( Lavandula hybrida = Lavandula x intermedia Emeric ex Loisel) results from hybridizations between the two species Lavandula vera and Lavandula latifolia , its aromatic profile is closer to that of true lavender, but with 6-8% camphor
  • There are four kinds of Lavandin in Provence, Super, Grosso, Sumian, and Abrial. Lavandin finds its favorite ground on the plateau of Valensole in the Alpes-de-Haute-Provence where its cultivation is intensive.

 

History and tradition

 

  • The nickname wardrobe is explained by the use of placing sachets of flowers in the cupboards, to keep insects away and to perfume the linen.
  • The creator of the term "Aromatherapy", René-Maurice Gattefossé, cured himself of an infection that was beginning to gangrene, due to a burn in his laboratory, thanks to repeated applications of essential oil of fine lavender impregnating a tulle fat

Properties

 

Plant properties

 

  • Mild sedative, febrifuge, analgesic and anti-inflammatory effect ( polyphenolic fraction and essential oil ) [3]
  • Choleretic like many Labiatae (or Lamiaceae ), spasmolytic (tested on guinea pig ileum) by post-synaptic action mediated by cyclic-AMP
  • Carminative, stomachic, diuretic
  • Anxiolytic, linalool would be the main component involved in the activity [4]
    • Linalool is analgesic (action on muscarinic, opioid and dopaminergic receptors), anti-inflammatory (inhibits edema induced by carrageenan), spasmolytic (by post-synaptic action mediated by cyclic-AMP), inhibits the release of acetylcholine and reduces the opening time of the ion channels of the neuromuscular junction (blocking of Na+ and/or Ca ++ channels), antioxidant (inhibits lipid peroxidation), sedative even when inhaled [5] [6 ] , hypnotic, anti-convulsant (by action on glutamate transport), hypothermic, local anesthetic
  • The aqueous extract protects neurons from glutamate neurotoxicity [7]
  • Antimutagen
  • Anti-bacterial, antifungal [8]
  • The active ingredients are said to be linalool , linalyl acetate , terpinene-1-ol and terpinene-4-ol
  • The essential oil is one of the jewels of modern aromatherapy, with excellent safety, tolerance, reliability
  • The extensive number of indications treated by this essential oil places it as a panacea (“aromatic polychrest”)

 

Bud properties

 

Properties of essential oil

 

  • Antibacterial, effective on resistant staphylococci (especially in mixtures with other chemotypes) [9]
    • The anti-infectious activity results from a synergy between linalool , 1,8-cineole and terpene hydrocarbons [10]
    • Lavender essential oil inhibits lipopolysaccharide (LPS)-induced inflammation by increasing the expression of Heat Shock Protein 70 (HSP70) [11] (reduction of intestinal hyperpermeability?)
    • Antibacterial against pathogenic flora while respecting resident flora (microbiota) [12]
  • Antifungal (dermatophytes), especially in synergy with tea tree EO [13]
  • Insecticide, anti-lice
  • Antispasmodic, by a postsynaptic mechanism of action and not atropine-like [14] , myorelaxant
  • Marked anxiolytic effect (200 µl of true lavender EO in low-intensity anxiety [15] or 80 mg of EO , 1 to 2 times a day) [16] , [17] , [18] , inhibition of GABA-induced currents [19] , sedative and anxiolytic even by inhalation [20] , [21] , relaxing effect by inhalation, leads to a decrease in blood pressure, heart rate, skin temperature, indicating a decrease in vegetative awakening activity [22] , prevention of falls in the elderly [23]
    • Significant, dose-dependent anxiolytic activity, comparable to that of lorazepam, increases pentobarbital-induced sleep time, without any significant effect on locomotor activity [24] , anxiolytic activity involves serotonergic transmission [25]
    • Improved sleep quality ( per os ) [26]
    • Induction of sleep by inhalation of lavender essential oil [27]
    • Induction of sleep by massage based on essential oil of lavender, even in severe burn victims [28]
    • The linalool - linalyl acetate synergy is essential for anxiolytic activity [29]
  • Favorable effect of massage on the psychological and immunological level, increases the rate of CD8 lymphocytes [30]
    • Lavender EO could contribute to the modulation of the immune and neuroendocrine system by acting on indoleamine 2,3-dioxygenase (IDO) and tryptophan metabolism [31]
  • Reduction of stress, by neuro-vegetative regulation [32] , by reduction of circulating cortisol [33] , inhibits the release of ACTH, adrenaline and gonadotropins in rats [34]
  • Calming, anticonvulsant [35] , [36] , interferes with glutamatergic transmission [37] , hypnotic, increases barbiturate narcosis in animals, hypothermic
  • Analgesic, anti-inflammatory [38] ( linalool and linalyl acetate ) [39] , low toxicity
    • The antihyperalgesic and antinociceptive effects of (−)- linalool derive from its ability to stimulate the opioid, cholinergic and dopaminergic systems [37] [3]
  • Antihypertensive by sympatholytic effect [40]
  • Mixed effect on the neuro-vegetative system for Lapraz & Duraffourd [41] , parasympatholytic (anticholinergic by inhibition of cholinesterase) and sympatholytic (hypotensive)
  • Anti-allergic, inhibits mast cell degranulation [42]
  • Healing, regenerating skin
  • Local anesthetic [43]
  • Dose-dependent estrogen-like effect (cancelled by a specific anti-estrogen) and anti-androgen [4]
  • Attention in prolonged use to gynecomastia effects in young boys [44] , [45]

 

Directions

 

Indications of the whole plant (phytotherapy)

 

  • Nervousness, fatigue, sleep disturbances
  • Anxiety during menopause, a high-quality clinical study shows a significant reduction in anxiety in postmenopausal women by the administration, twice daily, of capsules containing 500 mg of bitter orange blossom powder and lavender [46]
  • External wound treatment (rubbing alcohol)

 

Indications of the bud (gemmotherapy)

 

Specific indications of essential oil (aromatherapy)

 

 

Known or suspected mode of action

 

  • Linalool is analgesic (action on muscarinic, opioid and dopaminergic receptors), anti-inflammatory (inhibits edema induced by carrageenan), spasmolytic (by post-synaptic action mediated by cyclic-AMP), inhibits the release of acetylcholine and reduces the opening time of the ion channels of the neuromuscular junction (blocking of Na+ and/or Ca ++ channels), antioxidant (inhibits lipid peroxidation), sedative (even when inhaled), hypnotic, anti-convulsant (by action on glutamate transport), hypothermic, local anesthetic, antiviral against adenoviruses
  • Anxiolytic and antidepressant properties modulated by interactions with NMDA (N-methyl-D-aspartate) glutamate receptors and serotonin transporters [71]
  • Linalyl acetate (44%) of hydrophilic character, has a profile similar to linalool (31%) and is synergistic, sedative, anti-inflammatory, spasmolytic, anti-platelet aggregation
  • The linalool - linalyl acetate synergy is essential for anxiolytic activity [29]
  • HE sympatholytic

 

Usual formulations

 

 

Regulations

 

 

Possible side effects and precautions for use

 

  • Excellent safety, tolerance, reliability
  • Avoid during the first three months of pregnancy
  • Respect dosages in children, avoid prolonged treatments
  • A few cases of prepubertal gynecomastia have been described, due to probable in vitro estrogenic and antiandrogenic properties of the components of essential oils (as endocrine disruptors [73] ), a possible cause of idiopathic prepubertal breast development in young girls and in men. young boy ( linalool , linalyl acetate ) [74] , [75] , [44] , [45] (see discussion in tea tree card )
